Gopperth gives losing run a kicking

After 11 consecutive Aviva Premiership defeats, Newcastle finally lifted the gloom with a hard-earned 15-10 win over Wasps at Kingston Park.

Fly-half Jimmy Gopperth was successful with all five of his penalty attempts to boot the struggling Tynesiders to victory.

Wasps' Christian Wade scored the game's only try but his side were unable to build on it as a spirited Falcons defence stood firm.
